Thinking Through Drawing is about bending the rules, experiencing breakthroughs and new inventions. The focus of this course is on the immediacy and directness of drawing to generate ideas. Artists Lucy Turnbull and Kelly Reynolds welcome participants who want to develop and expand their drawing practice.

Join us with a sketchbook in hand, to glean, write and draw from your environment utilising pencil, charcoal, ink and collage. These intimate ideas may expand into future projects and new mediums. We will share and exchange ideas about recommended materials, portable studio kit and the role of sketchbooks.

Lucy Turnbull is a lecturer at Adelaide Central School of Art. She was awarded a Masters of Fine Art at the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture (2018).

Kelly Reynolds graduated from Adelaide Central School of Art with first class Honours (2017). Her field of practice encompasses video, performance, ceramics and installation.

Upcoming project: ‘Pigeon Palace’, Sauerbier House Residency.
